I’m heartbroken but hardly surprised that this is a thing that apparently happened: a dog owner in Tennessee had her male dog banished to a kill shelter because she caught it humping another male dog.
Fortunately, the internet came to the rescue, because the internet is f*cking awesome. Word of the mind-bogglingly stupid Tennessean’s attempt to rid the world of a “gay dog” spread via Facebook.
This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he’s mean or bc he tears things up, but because… His owner says he’s gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a “gay” dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine thing I’ve ever heard, its still discrimination! Don’t let this gorgeous dog die bc his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He’s in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down tomorrow bc there is no room at the inn!
Thankfully, someone showed up at the shelter this morning and to save the deviant canine.
I am adopting this big boy first thing in the morning. He has Kristin Joy Duewerth who is going to help with cost as well as many others in the area. He will be neutered/ htwm tested/ and vetted. He will be temperament tested and then places in a rescue verified and approved home. Woof connections is pulling many pups tomorrow, wonderful!! They need help with vetting the ones they pull also. We are all working together ( Diane Butler , Susan Bell) to save all the babies on the euth list for tomorrow.
People are stupid. People are wonderful. Such is life, I suppose.
